What server to buy....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


What server should I buy if I want to maintain a network of 15 computers? No application will run on this machine, only one shared database, a very large one (600 MB). Its a filemaker DB.


Any suggestions?? Should it be Dell, compaq, HP... just tell me and why ofcourse...


thanks in advance..

If nothing runs on it then you dont need a strong machine. You need a stable machine. I have the same situation in our office. I ended up saving money, and built a P3 500mhz machine based on a BX board, SCSI card with SCSI HDD, backup tape and thats it.

My network has 8 machines in it, though.

The way I see it, your problem is more likely to be a network speed rather then the server.
